The SPD Foundation just heard that one DSM-5 committee voted “No,” meaning that SPD should not be included in the DSM-5 as a “Novel Diagnosis in need of further research.”
One more committee will review the application before the “NO” is final.
Your voice is needed NOW to say that SPD does exist and that many are suffering. Research on SPD already exists, more than enough for inclusion as “a new category that needs additional research”!
Act NOW! The final deadline to show informed support for the inclusion of SPD in the revised Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM-5) is June 15, 2012.
